Inca 150 table saw

I added an INCA 150 table saw to the family of INCA machines I currently own.  I now have the INCA 150, the 259 table saw with mortiser, the 510 and 420 jointers and the 34o band saw.  

I added link belt in place of the regular v belt and I cleaned the saw up a bit as it was in pieces. The arbor had a bit of a wobble, but there was some debris and an almost paper thin shim that was causing all the problem.  I had decided to have a new arbor made after having a CAD drawing of the part done at an aerospace firm in LA owned by a relative, but lucky me I saved the cost. And now have a great saw for doing small model work.  I may do some tenon work with it now that included in the box of goodies I received with the saw was the missing piece I had from the 259 saw ( they just interchange the top part with the table grooved part on the tenon cutter).  I do have an awful lot of shoji to make and have spent all my downtime getting my INCA's all tuned up and now I have the barn in the prior post that has to come down. 
I also bought a 5/8 saw blade from Sac Machinery a former customer and made a shim for the blade to accept the 15 mm arbor that the INCA has.   
Included was a molding cutter and a bunch of other gadgets.  I have been able to figure out what a lot of them are by referencing the inca machinery handbook that I found off of Amazon, but as it is out of print you have to go through one of the book dealers that Amazon works with.  Well I just checked and it looks like there are none at this time but keep looking it is not a bad book at all.  
Hit me with an email if you have one of these and if you have any tips tricks or just good knowledge for this saw.

What is the difference between the 150 and 259? Why did you add a second saw?
